Explore the historic fort where once the future of Acadie and North America hung in the balance. Located on the border between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, Fort Beauséjour — Fort Cumberland Historic Site stands at the crossroads of Canadian natural and cultural history. The fort depicts the 18th century conflicts between France and Britain, and the later struggle between two great empires — America and Britain – for North American supremacy.

Notes from "Virtual road trip – Canada from coast to coast to coast"

Explore this place that stands at the crossroads of Canadian natural and cultural history. Already well established in the 18th century, the site became the scene of three acts of war between France and Great Britain, the deportation of the Acadians and the tearing apart of British North America.
